Keeping our food expenses low while my husband labors as a graduate student is a high priority for me. A few years ago, a friend suggested I try Angel Food as a way to save money. Before ordering though, I calculate what I would likely pay at the store for each item. Most times, buying similar items on sale at the grocery store ends up being a little cheaper. However, this month Angel Food was a better value. Also, perhaps because of Lent, there was more chicken and seafood (and less beef) in the March signature box, which was a plus.
This week's menu includes ideas for five dinners made from the pork, chicken, ground beef, ground chicken, fish, and frozen vegetables in the $31 signature box.
- Pork noodle stir fry
- Chicken pot pie
- Meatloaf, green beans, rice
- Chicken tacos, rice
- Fish, corn muffins, pea salad
- Venison steaks (not Angel food; from our freezer stash), tossed salad
Have you heard of Angel Food or tried it before?
